    Build them here.

    Make the dealerships better.

    Increasing mileage is being done as we speak.

    Reliability is better than ever, and getting better every day.

    Really this poll should allow multiple answers as there is no one that is more important than the other. I would say that the 1st 3 options, combined, have hit the nail on the head. Actually, IMO, it applies to ALL auto mfg's not just the Big 3.

    Increasing fuel efficiency, improving quality and reliability, and definitely lowering the costs are needed. We are paying WAY too much for vehicles that are of lesser quality( technology has advanced for sure but actual "quality" of the vehicles has dropped significantly - don't confuse the two - everything from the quality of the paint job to the quality of the body/mechanical parts used is dropping )and with the obvious fuel crisis improving efficiency is a must if any of us are going to be able to drive in the future.

    Well, speaking as a diehard Euro-lover. I think what they have to absolutely do is work on design. I think they have made major strides recently, but to be frank, GM sedans still look like rental cars. They need to make a car with classic and lasting style. Unfortunately, the Euro's have gotten distracted by the design antichrist, Chris Bangle. I think all of the manufacturers are going to get busy with the fuel effeciency and stuff. If they really wanted to be forward thinking, they would work on smart-deisel cars.:party:

    Well, everytime I hear a pop, squeak, rattle, or a clunk... it quickly reminds me of the one single thing I wish GM would improve.

    Oh, and cheaper prices (without crazy rebates) is always a bonus.
